Booked the Crown for Sunday lunch after reading so many favourable reviews - and it more than lived up to to the ratings.
My wife doesn't eat red meat so she made an enquiry about the possibility of roast chicken instead when she made our booking.. Back came a very positive response and what's more there even was a phone call on the day to check how she wanted it cooked. That's service! We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal - I had the terrific roast Scottish roast beef - and it came with a sharing dish of tasty vegetables - carrots, stick beans and broccoli - plus a decent Yorkshire pud and really good roasties.
As others have noted, the atmosphere is very friendly, the service attentive and the prices reasonable.. Real ale is available, too, so for us the Crown is the perfect choice for a country lunch. Couldn't help but overhear the next table repeating their booking for the follow week. Not surprised.
